John was also a founding member of the School of Architecture Dean’s Circle, and a member of the Sarah Amelia Hewitt Society, and The Society of 1859. He was honored as CUAA Alumnus of the Year 2009.
For 4 years, he was an adjunct professor at Cooper, teaching CE 450. He most recently worked for Zubatkin Owner Representation, where he was a principal architect. He also worked for Bovis Lend Lease and HRH Construction.
John was also an elected alumni representative to the Board of Trustees from 2010-2011.
Generous with his time, friendship and wicked sense of humor, John was a tireless advocate for the mission and educational aspirations of The Cooper Union. He was a dear friend of the School of Architecture who will be long remembered and deeply missed.
